From Software, the creators of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series, is the powerhouse developer behind Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. In this upcoming game, you play as a “one-armed wolf” – a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Which means it is up to you to take revenge, restore your honor, and kill ingeniously.

The audience at Gamescom is in for a very special treat as Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be playable for the first time on the show floor! Get a taste for some of the game’s larger than life enemies and the reimagining of 16th century Sengoku Japan as you experience FromSoftware’s new approach to combat and try out a variety of prosthetic arm tools.

Attendees can also check out the massive Corrupted Monk statue for a chilling photo opportunity and could possibly even snag a Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice t-shirt.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy (PS4, Xbox One)

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be heading into Germany, and he’s ready to heat things up! With a beautiful game lovingly brought back to life by the developers at Toys For Bob, a remastered soundtrack based on Stewart Copeland’s original classic, and voice acting by the legendary Tom Kenny, Spyro packs quite a punch. Fans at Gamescom will be able to experience new gameplay from the trilogy when they get their hands on Spyro: Year of the Dragon for the first time, and we can’t wait to see what they think!
